DiCaprio, Rafaeli tour Yad Vashem (YNet)
Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio and his Israeli girlfriend model Bar Rafaeli toured Monday evening the Yad Vashem Museum for the commemoration of the Holocaust, which opened after hours for their visit. DiCaprio apparently showed great interest in the tour and was moved by the experience, asking numerous questions and pausing repeatedly at various displays. The couple was expected to tour Jerusalem immediately following. DiCaprio and Rafaeli landed at Ben Gurion Airport on Sunday and headed straight to the Rafaeli family home in Hod Hasharon.

UPDATE: Israel Police arrest bodyguards of star Leonardo DiCaprio (Haaretz)
Israel Police arrested on Monday two members of actor Leonardo DiCaprio's security team after they clashed with photographers during a visit to Jerusalem by the star and his Israeli girlfriend Bar Refaeli. Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said DiCaprio and supermodel Refaeli were taking a private tour of the Western Wall tunnels, next to the Western Wall which is Judaism's holiest site, in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Rosenfeld said the photographers waited outside the tunnels for the couple to emerge. "Two of his [DiCaprio's] security guards were arrested by police after being involved in a fight that broke out," Rosenfeld said. "They are being questioned." Covering their faces after the tour, DiCaprio and Refaeli were whisked away in a waiting white van.
